Week 5: NFL Player of the Week

Week 5: NFL Player of the Week - Ben Roethlisberger

words // Brandon Richard

There were plenty of game-changing performances to consider for the Week 5 NFL Player of the Week. Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson ran 29 times for 122 yards and three first quarter touchdowns against the Arizona Cardinals to help the Vikings pick up their first victory of the season. Buffalo Bills safety George Wilson tallied 11 tackles, defended three passes, had a quarterback hit and an interception en route to being named AFC Defensive Player of the Week for his performance in the Buffalo Bills’ win over the Eagles. Oakland Raiders kicker Sebastian Janikowski connected on four field goals, three from 50 yards and out. However, it’s Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger that walks away with this week’s honors for his brave performance against the Tennessee Titans.

Battered, bruised and taking snaps behind a revolving door of offensive lineman against an aggressive Tennessee Titans defense, Roethlisberger showed some of that moxy that has helped him win two Super Bowls. Ben got back on track by completing 24 of his 34 passes for 228 yards and 5 touchdown passes, leading the Steelers to a dominant 38-17 victory and putting a halt to the Titans’ three-game win streak. The five touchdown passes tied a single-game team record Roethlisberger already shares with Mark Malone and Terry Bradshaw.

Pittsburgh will host the Jacksonville Jaguars this Sunday. Can “Big Ben” duplicate last Sunday’s performance?
